Antique optical lens, crystals, garnet,
pearls, rhodonite, and Bali silver
This is what I wrote at the time:
I do not need glasses...yet! But there are times when the print is just too small. This handy magnifier is actually a powerful antique optical test lens, dangling from a gorgeous strand of purple, pink, garnet, and black. The lens is French, from a test set made in the late 1800s. Isn't that the coolest thing? The lens "strength" is etched on the glass. The necklace is a 24 inch long continuous strand to slip over your head. Keep this one handy! It is a one-of-a-kind original.
